FUD Zilla claims ATI is gearing up. The site reports the RV770 GPU is already in production and also writes that the R700 may arrive a lot sooner than expected.
The way it looks now, there is a strong possibility that R700 should show its face at Computex (June 3) while the launch itself might be shortly before or after Computex. We still don’t have the final details.
RV770 is the based on the R700 design and the R700 itself consists of two RV770 chips. From what we know, RV770 should be at least fifty percent faster than the RV670.
If all goes well there is a big chance that R700 will launch in Q2, but rather later than earlier. We are still in the dark about the real details of D10U 30 as this GPU(s) has a similar schedule and ought to launch in Q2.
